We will indicate where the information we have requested is mandatory or optional. We will also explain the consequences should you decide not to provide information which we have indicated is mandatory. In some circumstances this may mean we are unable to process your application.


The main purposes for which we use your Recruitment Data include:

  • Supporting and Processing your Application, for example, so we can assess your ability to meet the jobspecification and to verify references and professional qualifications provided by applicants.
  • Improving our Application Process, for example to ensure that the careers section of our website is user-friendly and contains appropriate and helpful information.
  • Security Management, for example to ensure the security of our premises, assets, information, employees andother personnel.

  • Ensuring compliance with our Code of Conduct, for example to ensure that we are living up to our values.

We may verify the Recruitment Data you provide during the recruitment process and/or collect personal data about you from third party sources to assist with our “Pre-Employment Checks”. If this occurs:

We may also process your Recruitment Data to comply with our legal obligations or because it is in our legitimate business interests to do so (for example, where it is necessary to understand our applicants in sufficient detail so we can operate an effective recruitment process).

We restrict access to Recruitment Data to people within our group of companies who have a “need to know” such information. For example, certain individuals within Dentsply Sirona will have access to your Recruitment Data in order to process your application and manage the recruitment process.

  • Outside Dentsply Sirona

We share Recruitment Data with authorised third-party service providers to conduct and manage the recruitment process.

However, we may retain your name and address or email address, a record of the role you applied for, and the date of your application for a period of 2 years. We may also retain your Recruitment Data where we have your permission to keep it on file so that we may contact you again if another suitable position arises – in this situation we will retain such Recruitment Data for up to 2 years.

Whenever we transfer your Recruitment Data outside of the EEA or the UK, we will take legally required steps to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place to protect your Recruitment Data and to make sure it is treated securely and in accordance with this Notice.
